Press Release

Washington – Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) today received the Guardian of Small Business award, presented by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for his strong record of support for small businesses in the 116th Congress.  

The Guardian of Small Business award is presented to members of Congress who vote with small business 70 percent or more of the time on key small business issues.

Upon receiving the award, Congressman Keller made the following statement:

“I am honored to receive this award because it means we are listening to the needs of our small businesses and workers. Since coming to Congress, I have advocated for legislation that allows businesses to do what they do best: innovate and produce. While I am proud of the things we have accomplished to support our businesses and safely reopen our economy, there is more work to be done. 

“The Paycheck Protection Program has been a lifeline for millions of Americans as we beat this pandemic, and Congress must immediately reauthorize and extend this program to drive out the remaining $138 billion to the businesses in our hardest hit industries that need it most.”
